One of 22 privately owned apartments, on an exclusive development on the desirable Pentire Headland between the famous Fistral surfing beach, the beautiful River Gannel and the quaint village of Crantock. It is in an area of outstanding beauty in the quieter part of West Newquay. Ideal for families, couples and friends. Sorry, no pets allowed. The apartment benefits from its own dedicated off-road parking space and beautifully maintained landscaped and fenced grounds. Built in 2004 it is sunny, airy and spacious. It is heated by gas central heating, all rooms have opening windows and wood laminate or ceramic tiled flooring. Ideal for families, couples and friends who wish to enjoy the luxury of tastefully coordinated quality furnishings and fittings making it a "home from home" and suitable for all year use. A simple 2 minute walk down a rugged path, or 5 minutes on the pavement, and you are on Fistral Beach. Flat beautiful golden sands and numerous rock pools at either end are a great favourite with children. (Fistral Beach has an RNLI presence from Sping to October.) Either end of Fistral Beach there are cafes/restaurants, surf hire and toilets. Sit and picnic in the landscaped gardens, relax and enjoy the views, listen to the ocean and smell and feel the freshness of the Cornish air. Or try one of the other 9 beautiful sandy beaches in Newquay. The Coast Path passes Fistral Retreats which makes it an ideal choice for walking north and south. There are also less arduous gentle walks onto the Pentire Headland, 5 minute walk from Fistral Restreats, with fantastic views and an eaterie (open all day) serving breakfasts, cream teas, lunches and evening meals. Crantock Village with its golden sands and dunes are just a 10 minute walk across the River Gannel footbridge or ferry (in season). Quiet and peaceful but within walking distance of all the amenities that Newquay has to offer. The vibrant nightlife, shops and supermarkets, numerous eateries offering local Cornish delights as well as dishes from around the world, to suit a vast array of taste buds, are all within easy reach. For families there are some 9 beaches to choose from as well as a Waterworld, Fun Pool, Zoo, Aquarium, horse riding, lake, Farm World, Pitch and Putt and 4 Screen Cinema, all year round tennis, leisure park, bowling and more within walking distance. Those seeking an adrenalin rush may prefer surfing at Fistral or one of the other 8 premier surfing beaches. Then there's diving, sea/river canoeing, coasteering, sea/coarse fishing, kayaking, segway, snorkel safari, cage diving with the sharks and much more. Alternatively, there is the finest all year 18 hole golf course just a 2 minute drive (10-15 minute walk) which is extremely popular with golf enthusiasts. As well as a pitch and putt course on the headland (less than 5 minute walk) and 2 or more in Newquay. Eat at the Bistro set in the cliffs on the Esplanade directly below Fistral Retreats, or the Lodge at the end of Pentire Headland and watch the sun setting with the ocean lapping below, or pop into one of the hotels nearby. If you fancy a gentle walk along Fistral Beach or the coast path to North Fistral try Rick Steins or the Fish House. Swimming pools and spas are open to non-residents at neighbouring hotels for a small charge. Ballroom dancing is also available at a local hotel. Information on local places of interest, sports, activities for all ages as well as Ordnance Survey maps are available at the apartment and from The Newquay Tourist Information Centre and their website.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Lovely location
Stayed at Fistral Retreats for a week with my teenager son and his friend. The apartment is ideally situated for a holiday in Newquay. 20 minute walk into the town centre and wonderfully situated opposite Fistral Beach. Having a dedicated car parking spot was excellent. The apartment is spacious and has everything you need for a self catering stay. However like anywhere you stay there were some negatives, there is no where to sit outside the apartment and no sun gets to the front of the apartment itself. It would have been nice to come back after being out for the day and be able to sit outside the patio doors. Also, although not a fault of the apartment itself, we had very noisy neighbours above us (a family with 2 young children) and the noise from them walking around and the children jumping and banging about was not the most relaxing. You can also hear the washing machine vibrating through the ceiling.

Breathtaking view and very comfortable accommodation.
We are a family of 4 and had a fantastic stay at Fistral Retreats. The flat is well equipped and in the perfect location to take advantage of the quieter South Fistral beach. We loved being so close to the beach and in a quiet, beautiful part of Newquay. There were lovely walks to be had nearby too. The owners are very efficient and communicated everything in advance and for arrival brilliantly. We will look forward to returning again!

An excellent holiday apartment with great views of the ocean and Fistral beach
The apartment is perfectly situated in Newquay to facilitate the easy exploring of the north, east, west and south of Cornwall. The owners, Barbara and Cliff, as well as the property manager, Mary, were keen to make sure that my family and I were not having any problems with the apartment or on our holiday, particularly in these times of the pandemic. We loved the apartment - this was our second stay - and we were fortunate to have excellent weather. We certainly hope to return to this excellent Fistral Retreats Apartment again soon.

We keep coming back ! Lovely Apartment & excellent views...
Stayed with my 2 sons over the Christmas period and the apartment had everything we could ask for; very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Great communication from the housekeeper, which enabled us to get into the apartment earlier than expected. Our second stay here in the last few years, which says it all really...

Pentire was such a lovely surprise a very nice area quiet & select. As for the apartment we could not have wished for better so very clean & comfortable. Could have stay longer. The view was exceptional from the lounge over Fisteral beach. It was the best apartment we have ever stayed in. Hope to return,perhaps next year.

Excellent apartment with a great sea view and perfectly placed to explore Cornwall
This clean and modern apartment is perfectly situated to explore all of Cornwall. Fistral beach is nearby as are Newquay's many and various attractions including the Zoo and a picturesque crazy golf course, plus shops and a variety of eating venues. The apartment block itself has an air of exclusivity about it and all in all we had a brilliant week's stay there.
